Outlook – Filtering Junk E-mail

We all get junk email and many times from the same source(s). You can filter or color code the Junk mail with the Outlook Organizer feature.

To automatically delete, move, or color-code all junk e-mail messages:

  1. On the Outlook toolbar, click Organize.
  2. Click Junk E-mail.
  3. Select the options you want, and click Turn on for each set of options you choose.

It is recommended that you configure Outlook to “color” your email first. This way you are able to see if Outlook is tagging (coloring) mail that you do not consider Junk email, then you can add this address to an Exception List.

To Make an exception in your Junk Senders list:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Rules Wizard.
  2. In the Apply rules in the following order box, click Exception List.
  3. In the Rule description box, click Exception List.
  4. Click Add.
  5. Enter the e-mail address you want to make an exception for.

s sent from the e-mail address you enter will appear in your Inbox as usual, even if the e-mail address is part of a domain listed in your Junk Senders list. Any rules you applied to the domain will not be applied to this sender.
